Smart organisations have realised that this can be a problem and have
methods to avoid it.  E.g. often, senior technicians don't necessarily
have skills in management, but want their careers (and particularly
their salaries) to progress - so it's wise to have a "consultant" track
where the can actually earn more than the people they report to.

Hell, even the *army* understands this.  A sergeant-major earns
significantly more than the 2nd Lieutenant he has to call "sir", and
almost certainly has more value to the organisation.
